How we work
As the use of electronic media has grown, so has the need for industry agreed standards. JICWEBS standards are constantly evolving in order to keep pace with the needs of the industry.
An important part of JICWEBS role is to seek guidance and recommendations from the industry through its standards groups. Each group has its own objective and area of specialist interest. Members are drawn from across the industry to ensure that all interests are represented. Groups meet to debate and discuss the issues affecting the industry and make recommendations to JICWEBS.
Each group has its own structure and remit. To find out more about each group, including how to make sure your views are heard, please contact us.
Standards groups propose measurement and trading principles to JICWEBS for consideration. Once JICWEBS adopts these they come under the umbrella of industry agreed standards.
JICWEBS recommends that data and business practices are subject to independent audit on a regular basis to verify that they meet industry standards. We work closely with ABC to ensure that all our industry agreed data and process standards can be verified by independent certification. We believe that
- standard ways of measuring allow meaningful comparisons
- self regulation, underpinned by independent verification, increases trust in the industry
